Pakistan embassy based in Kabul announced on Friday that they have helped around 350 people including foreigners to leave Afghanistan for Pakistan.

As per the embassy, the people were flown out in two special flights of Pakistan International Airline from Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA).

Pakistan ambassador to Kabul Mansoor Ahmad Khan in a Twitter post said that the embassy had made arrangements for the passengers inside the compound of the embassy and were then flown out.

The 350 people include foreigners, Pakistanis, and Afghans.

Pakistan is now another country after the US, France, Britain, Spain, India, and other countries who are either helping countries evacuate their own nationals and their Afghan allies or are vacating their own nationals and Afghan colleagues.

Earlier, Pakistan had also opened a Torkham crossing-point to help stranded people cross the border into Pakistan.

Leaving Afghanistan is now one of the most challenging and difficult tasks as the HKIA is besieged by thousands of people desperate to leave Kabul.

The airport’s security is now manned by US forces who are deployed to evacuate thousands of their nationals and Afghans who have worked for them.
